Christmas Comes Early: Countdown to Selby

I've sort of gone back and forth on how much we need Josh Selby, considering we're undefeated with the best offense in the nation. Did the Colorado St. game expose some offensive weaknesses? In that game, we shot less than 50 percent; fortunately, our defense also held them to something like 25 percentage points below their shooting average.

It has seemed to me that we could use one more perimeter scorer; guys like TT and Releford have shot well from outside so far, but that's not their forte, nor is it for Brady. Reed shouldn't be our only deep threat. Selby by all accounts can score it from anywhere on the floor.

Self says he probably won't get the start. I'm sure that won't last long.

More from ESPN on Selby's imminent arrival.

Also, do yourself a favor and revisit the scouting report on Selby. He's actually pretty good.


  1. Good grief. Mario Little arrested. This may simplify Self's lineup decisions.

  2. Sounds like a very embarrassing incident. With Lew leaving under dark clouds, the ticket scandal, Selby penalties, b-ball/football fights, Mangino . . . it's been a bad few years for KU PR.

    I have secured an appointment to watch the USC game Saturday, so hopefully there will be fun things to post about then.
